  2. Slip and falls: These types of accidents can happen anywhere, from a public sidewalk to a private home, and can result in injuries such as broken bones or head trauma.
  3. Workplace accidents: According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), there were over 2.8 million non-fatal workplace injuries and illnesses in the United States in 2019.
  4. Medical malpractice: When medical professionals fail to provide a reasonable standard of care, patients can suffer serious injuries or even death.
  5. Product liability: Defective or dangerous products can cause serious injuries or even death to consumers.

Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death for people between the ages of 1 and 44 in the United States, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

The Importance of Seeking Medical Attention

It is important to seek medical attention promptly after an accident, even if you do not feel any pain or discomfort at the time.

Some injuries, such as whiplash or traumatic brain injuries, may not become apparent until several hours or even days after the accident.

Seeking medical attention not only helps ensure that you receive appropriate treatment for your injuries, but also provides important documentation for your personal injury claim.

The Types of Damages That Can Be Awarded in a Personal Injury Case

When a person is injured due to the negligence of another, damages may be awarded to compensate for losses.

These damages can include:

Economic damages: Compensation for financial losses such as medical expenses, lost wages, and diminished earning capacity.

Non-economic damages: Compensation for losses that are not financial in nature, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
